LUke Chapter 5

31 And Jesus answering said unto them, They that are whole need
not a physician; but they that are sick.
32 I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.

I begin to understand now that Forgiveness is the Key to everlasting Life. I guess i should say “one of the Keys”, as i am not that knowledgeable. But i do know this. And that is, there will be some people, some people who will think to themselves that they have sinned too much, and they can never be forgiven. And i do also know that everyone who asks will be forgiven. The Key is to remain sin free after being forgiven. But there is no one whose sins cannot be forgiven. And that is why i now understand, Forgiveness is a Key to everlasting life. Because ALL have sinned. Every single person has sinned, and if any one of us has to stand Judgment, who can stand? None of us! So our Key to survival is to seek and receive Forgiveness for our sins, and then to remain sin free. Repentance, and remission. Forgiveness is the only way any of us can become saved. But for ourselves to be forgiven, we first have to forgive all others and have brotherly love for all.

And keep All God’s commandments. It’s not that hard. It may not even be for that long. But, as in the pearl of great price, the man saw what a bargain he found, and he sold everything he had for the pearl of great price. Because the man recognized that the pearl was worth much more than he paid for it.

I thought about how i turn my life over to God, and i try to follow God’s will at all times. I tried to think, how can i describe it? I have done it so long, it is natural to me, as though there is not one in my head, but Two. And so i can have a conversation with God at any given time. It’s kind of hard to describe, so let me give an example. First, i pray and wish to live my life for God, and do whatever God’s will is. I don’t know what it is, but i ask that i will do it. Then this is a sample of what i do. And i know, God hears everything i pray, as well as every thing i think, say and do.

So an example is, i say my daily prayers, every morning when i first wake up, and every night, just before i go to sleep. And in the morning, i may get up after i say my prayers and i may say to myself “What should i do today?” And then, without thinking about it, i may just suddenly think, Today i will go to Depoe Bay and go kayaking. So i will check the weather report, and if the weather concurs, then i concur, then i go. If the weather does not concur, then i will think, where else will i go? then i may think Little Nestucca Bay. And so, that’s where i go. I don’t really hear any voices, i just let my impulses be my guide, so to speak. So i don’t ever sit down and think , hmmm, what shall i do for dinner? Should i go here, or there, or get this, or that? I just think to myself “What should i do for dinner today?” And the answer may pop in Salad bar and cheese pizza at the buffet. Sometimes, i may ask for confirmation. Are you sure? Does that match the financial situation? But mostly, i just accept the answer, whatever it is, and there i go. And i always seem to be where i am supposed to be. And i don’t end up places i am not supposed to be.

Sometimes, i will know a day in advance. Say i may know that tomorrow i am going to go to Cape Foulweather and hike around. Or i may know that i am going to the buffet tomorrow. And i don’t question it, unless it seems out of order. If i know it is something wrong, then i would never do it. And besides, i would never concur.

I don’t struggle and think about it, or try to figure things out. Sometimes, i may not have a clear idea of what i am supposed to do. Then i start wondering, should i do this, or that, or what? And sometimes i have to figure things out on my own. But mostly, i just allow whatever comes into my mind. I allow my inspiration to occur. With practice it becomes second nature.

And i realize now that it is the same thing we are told to do in Scripture! Now isn’t that something!

Mark Chapter 13

10 And the gospel must first be published among all nations.
11 But when they shall lead you, and deliver you up, take no thought
beforehand what ye shall speak, neither do ye premeditate: but
whatsoever shall be given you in that hour, that speak ye: for it is not
ye that speak, but the Holy Ghost.

This is exactly what it’s like. Only not just allowing complete control of what you say, but what you think. Such as, what’s for dinner? Sometimes i don’t even ask, but i understand, tomorrow we will go somewhere, tonight we will camp here, or we were going to camp here, but for some reason, we changed our mind and now we are going to break camp and drive for an hour, and change our campsite. Why? I don’t know. I just follow my intuition.

Ezekiel Chapter 33

AGAIN the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
2 Son of man, speak to the children of thy people, and say unto them,
When I bring the sword upon a land, if the people of the land take a
man of their coasts, and set him for their watchman:
3 If when he seeth the sword come upon the land, he blow the
trumpet, and warn the people;
4 Then whosoever heareth the sound of the trumpet, and taketh not
warning; if the sword come, and take him away, his blood shall be
upon his own head.
5 He heard the sound of the trumpet, and took not warning; his blood
shall be upon him. But he that taketh warning shall deliver his soul.
6 But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet,
and the people be not warned; if the sword come, and take any
person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his
blood will I require at the watchman’s hand.
7 ¶ So thou, O son of man, I have set thee a watchman unto the house
of Israel; therefore thou shalt hear the word at my mouth, and warn
them from me.
8 When I say unto the wicked, O wicked man, thou shalt surely die;
if thou dost not speak to warn the wicked from his way, that wicked
man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine
hand.
9 Nevertheless, if thou warn the wicked of his way to turn from it; if
he do not turn from his way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast
delivered thy soul.

Matthew Chapter 10

34 Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to
send peace, but a sword.
35 For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the
daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her
mother in law.
36 And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household.
37 He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me:
and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.
38 And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not
worthy of me.
39 He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for
my sake shall find it.
40 ¶ He that receiveth you receiveth me, and he that receiveth me
receiveth him that sent me.
41 He that receiveth a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive
a prophet’s reward; and he that receiveth a righteous man in the
name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man’s reward.
42 And whosoever shall give to drink unto one of these little ones a
cup of cold water only in the name of a disciple, verily I say unto
you, he shall in no wise lose his reward.

Gospel of the Holy Twelve

Lection 46

The Transfiguration on the Mount.
The Giving of the Law.

1. AFTER six days, when the Feast of Tabernacles was nigh at hand, Iesus taketh the twelve and bringeth them up into a high mountain apart, and as he was praying the fashion of his countenance was changed, and he was transfigured before them, and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light.
2. And, behold, there appeared unto them Moses and Elias talking with him and spake of the Law, and of his decease which he should accomplish at Jerusalem.
3.. And Moses spake, saying, This is he of whom I foretold, saying, A prophet from the midst of thy brethren, like unto me shall the Eternal send unto you, and that which the Eternal speaketh unto him, shall he speak unto you, and unto him shall ye hearken, and whoso will not obey shall bring upon themselves their own destruction.
4. Then Peter said unto Iesus, Lord, it is good for us to be here; if thou wilt let us make here three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias.
5. While he yet spake, behold a bright cloud overshadowed them, and twelve rays as of the sun issued from behind the cloud, and a voice came out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him.
6. And when the disciples heard it, they fell on their faces and were sore amazed, and Jesus came and touched them and said, Arise and be not afraid. And when they had lifted up their eyes, they saw no man, save Jesus only. And the six glories were seen upon him.
7. AND Iesus said unto them, Behold a new law I give unto you, which is not new but old. Even as Moses gave the Ten Commandments to Israel after the flesh, so also I give unto you the Twelve for the Kingdom of Israel after the Spirit.
8. For who are the Israel of God ? Even they of every nation and tribe who work righteousness, love mercy and keep my commandments, these are the true Israel of God. And standing upon his feet, Jesus spake, saying:
9. Hear O Israel, JOVA, thy God is One; many are My seers, and My prophets. In Me all live and move, and have subsistence.
10. Ye shall not take away the life of any creature for your pleasure, nor for your profit. nor yet torment it.
11. Ye shall not steal the goods of any, nor gather lands and riches to yourselves, beyond your need or use.
12. Ye shall not eat the flesh, nor drink the blood of any slaughtered creature, nor yet any thing which bringeth disorder to your health or senses.
13. Ye shall not make impure marriages, where love and health are not, nor yet corrupt yourselves, or any creature made pure by the Holy.
14. Ye shall not bear false witness against any, nor wilfully deceive any by a lie to hurt them.
15. Ye shall not do unto others, as ye would not that others should do unto you.
16. Ye shall worship One Eternal, the Father-Mother in Heaven, of Whom are all things, and reverence the holy Name.
17. Ye shall revere your fathers and your mothers on earth, whose care is for you, and all the Teachers of Righteousness.
18. Ye shall cherish and protect the weak, and those who are oppressed, and all creatures that suffer wrong.
19. Ye shall work with your hands the things that are good and seemly; so shalt ye eat the fruits Of the earth, and live long in the land.
20. Ye shall purify yourselves daily and rest the Seventh Day from labour, keeping holy the Sabbaths and the Festival of your God.
21. Ye shall do unto others as ye would that others should do unto you.
22. And when the disciples heard these words, they smote upon their breasts, saying: Wherein we have offended. O God forgive us: and may thy wisdom, love and truth within us incline our hearts to love and keen this Holy Law.
23. And Jesus said unto them, My yoke is equal and my burden light, if ye will to bear it, to you it will be easy. Lay no other burden on those that enter into the kingdom, but only these necessary things.
24. This is the new Law unto the Israel of God, and the Law is within, for it is the Law of Love, and it is not new but old. Take heed that ye add nothing to this law, neither take anything from it. Verily I say unto you, they who believe and obey this law shall be saved, and they who know and obey it not, shall be lost.
25. But as in Adam all die so in Christ shall all be made alive. And the disobedient shall be purged through many fires; and they who persist shall descend and shall perish eternally.
26. And as they came down from the mountain, Jesus charged them, saying, Tell the vision to no man, until the Son of man be risen again from the dead.
27. His disciples asked him, saying, Why then say the scribes that Elias must first come? And Jesus answered and said unto them, Elias truly shall first come and restore all things.
28. But I say unto you, that Elias is come already, and they knew him not, but have done unto him whatsoever they listed. Likewise shall also the Son of man suffer of them. Then the disciples understood that he spake unto them of John the Baptist.
